New Balance M998: Bring Back Series

01

Image

—01. Made in USA.

Words

The all grey New Balance releases are always the ones that catch my attention and Blue Button Shop has one of the most desirable colourways in one of the most sought after models still available. Options like this are the best of the best in my opinion, to be chosen any day over vibrant of-the-moment limited editions that are rolled out in steady streams. More all grey colourways, I say!

—01. Produced in the Flimby factory.

Words

The M577 style from New Balance has long been a go-to staple of anyone looking for a simple no-frills running shoe and in honour of its 25th anniversary it has received the special treatment. Utilizing premium pigskin and ENCAP components, this shoe has always been an undeniably great design and looks especially good in this two-tone navy, grey and white colourway.

New Balance 999CRB

01

Image

01. Suede upper.

Words

I always prefer the grey versions of classic New Balance models. They’re fresh, simple and free of ostentation but every once in a while I could do with just a little colour. This pair bridges the gap between some of the brighter 999s and the most basic grey ones. The subtle use of blue and tonal greys is about as tasteful as it gets.

New Balance CRT300VW

01

Image

—01. Suede and mesh upper.

Words

The CRT300 stands out as a unique retro-inspired tennis shoe amongst all the others out there. Pairing CT300 styling – originally from 1979 – with a REVlite sole, the classic silhouette is given a modern update. An array of bright colours have been released, but this simpler white option is my preference.

New Balance M990 TB3

01

—01. Via Strato.

Words

These 'triple black' 990s might not win everyone over, but I'm on board with their monochromatic colour scheme. While light grey is certainly the obvious choice for this desirable US-made style, this version would make for a great alternative.

New Balance 2040 GL

01

Image

—01. ENCAP midsole.

Words

The 2040 is one of the lesser seen US-made New Balance models. Certainly not as popular as the 998 or 993, it fairs just as well in daily wear, and ups the ante in running terms. The shoe is filled with technical advancements, making it easy to see why it's the brand's most expensive model.

New Balance M997GY

01

Image

—01. Made in USA.

Words

It's hard for New Balance to go wrong when they use a variety of greys on their classic models and that theory definitely applies to this 997 reissue, now available through Firmament in Berlin. The interesting texture on the tongue and heel give the shoe enough detail, while the silhouette is where the true appeal lies.
